The Functional Testing and Test Automation course is designed to build the technical skills required for successful software functional testing and automation, especially with open source tools and technology. A research report by Gartner predicts that by 2022, 90% of enterprises will be using open source test automation tools for Agile and DevOps, but 50% of them will still struggle with talent availability and the culture required to succeed.
This course is designed to help students understand the fundamentals of functional testing and test automation. It covers the various techniques in manual and automation testing required to verify the external behaviour of the application under test. It helps to develop an appreciation of the testing approach, framework basics, automation scripts development, testing effort estimation and reporting of testing metrics. It introduces students to both open source and commercial tools for functional testing and test automation, and deals with the skills required for becoming a software test engineer.
The course provides hands-on sessions on manual testing and how web-based application testing can be automated using tools like Selenium. It also covers various frameworks such as Selenium architecture, Selenium WebDriver and tools like Jenkins.
Students will have to leverage this environment to complete the industry assignment as well as to complete the Part B section of the summative assessment.+ Read More - Read Less
